Microchip Announced Their New Embedded Firmware Development Framework Including Support for Internal and 3rd Party Support
Microchip’s new development framework is the first to integrate the licensing, resale and support of both Microchip and third-party middleware, drivers, libraries and real-time operating systems in one suite with Harmony combining third-party offerings from Express Logic, FreeRTOS, InterNiche, WITTENSTEIN High and Integrity Systems. With the growing complexity of embedded systems, industry studies have shown that software development accounts for 60% of the average design cycle. At the same time, designers are utilizing a variety of software with untested compatibility and multiple sources of purchasing and support. This causes increased verification and debug time after the design is completed, which can cost 10-30 times more than defects found during the design phase. Click here to read the full press release.
